of shocks me when there is no outcry in america to news stories like this one over the weekend. the u.s., the u.s. is preparing to pivot from domestic regulatory reform to push for a new tough international capital regime. what does that mean? oh, new international capital regime. that's a bubble government. you know, a new world order for your money. we're talking about the foundation of international financial regulations and global governing. hmm. what happens if i don't like that global government? how do i vote them out? where are all the taxes go? who is getting that tax money? it's a trial balloon, gang. and i can't believe how quiet it is. i mean when i was growing up, you were not that different. didn't we used to hate the idea -- didn't i remember reading some place about global government, really bad, like spooky bad? i'm not all for that global government thing. here in america this weekend, the response has been total silence. am i alone? i got up this morning i even heard the republicans were all for this one. wow! how does that happen? oh, i remember. it's the evil gree

america's political system? did you watch the u.s. presidential debate? what did you think? >> it's kind of hard because i actually don't live in america. i think it's like -- it's just like here. you know, you get your chance to vote. you have your own say. like barack obama, he's a democrat like the labour party. and what was his name, the republican, john mccain, it's like the conservatives. so it's very similar. >> chairman and chief executive of medco health solutions, dave snow announced his company will benefit from the new u.s. health care bill this year. during his speech to the detroit economic club. medco is the largest u.s. pharmacy benefit manager and operates the largest u.s. mail order pharmacy. this is about 45 minutes. >> back in that period of time i was there like many of you and you felt that. and you experienced that. and not only on the east side of detroit but both my degrees coming from wayne state university, it all sort of touches. it's interesting, you know, when you look at the detroit economic club, it helps set the agenda when you look at that film of bringi
. a lot of presidents we're talking about today. of course, dick is the author of "2010, take back america." all right, dick, so it's a little confusing. larry summers worked for president clinton. now he works for president obama and somehow in the middle it's president bush's fault. >> well, they're going to rename the san andreas fault in california president bush's fault. both sides have merit here. the underlying responsibility for this crisis is clearly the policies of the clinton administration because they required the fannie mac and freddie mae, fannie mae and freddie mac, i got them mistransvestite there to upgrade and increase the number of lower income mortgages to 50% of their portfolio that could only be done by issuing mortgages with no down payment required and with very loose financial terms. and then during the bush administration, bush tried to regulate fannie mae and chris dodd and barney frank filibus r filibustered the bill or in the senate dodd did and stopped it from passing. on the other hand, once you had the poison of these bad mortgages in the system, the decis

in america, economics is the beginning and the end of most successful political endeavors. let's remember that arizona was the last state to approve a national holiday for martin luther king. and one of the things they did, it cost them hundreds of millions of dollars, when the african-american community across this country called for boycotts. finally, they were 50th, but they did it. they did it because they risked economics in the state of arizona. because, as you have stated, look, when the police intervene with me or with you or with anyone, it should be on the basis of our conduct. our behavior. not the country they suspect we came from and whether or not we were born here or not. that -- i'll tell you something. the criminal element, those human smugglers, the drug dealers, the rapists, those causing so much damage in arizona and across this country, they've got to be happy with this law. because what is going to happen is the eyes, the ears, that the police need so much of the community in general, so that they can combat crime, they're going to cause a division between the people
, and that's the trillions of dollars of damages to working families in america. what happened when the bubble burst more than a year ago? we had a tremendous loss in the value of retirement savings. we had a tremendous loss in the family savings for their children to go to college. we had an enormous drop in employment. we had a tremendous drop in families covered by health care because of the loss of employment. we had damag damage on every paa family's finances, including the value of their home so that millions of american families today owe more on their home than their home is worth. well, quite frankly, mr. president, i don't believe that a system of million-dollar bonuses and billion-dollar profits and trillion dollars of damage to the american working families is a system that we need here in america. indeed, tonight's vote was about whether or not to have a public debate on the rules of the road for wall street, but it was also about whose side are on you. are you on the side of some wall street firms which don't believe that any additional rules of the road are necessary?
here's a look at some other stories making news early today in america. in indiana, news cameras captured a firefighter being knocked to the ground by an explosion which ripped his helmet off. the firefighter was attempting to extinguish flames in a minivan when he was hit by the blast. fortunately his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. >>> in mississippi, four men are lucky to be alive after driving directly into the path of this oncoming tornado. one of the passengers captured the raging winds and rain on his cell phone only moments before the gusts flipped the car 30 yards through the air. thankfully, the guys sustained only minor injuries. amazing. >>> a kentucky man is under arrest after leading police on a dangerous chase which was captured by the police car's dash cam. the suspect injured an officer who was attempting to stop the car before spinning out and crashing into a police cruiser. the suspect is being held on several charges. >>> and in new hampshire, one farm is welcoming its tiniest new resident with big smiles. weighing only 6 pounds at birth, the

in terms of the money they're making. this was a great investment by the taxpayer of america into america. what's wrong with investing into a little american -- >> neil: but mayor, it would be like say you're giving money to your kids, two different kids, the one kid paid his brother's loan back with the money from another. you know what i'm saying? nothing was paid back, so to speak. you borrowed from one to the other. the company is stick in who can hock to us. >> no question. i'm not arguing that. the important issue is what are the preinjections, the numbers in the company. overall the company is getting healthier. this was a wise investment that saved millions of jobs. >> neil: mayor, i don't dispute that. you might be right but hasn't paid it back in and out. when we had the inspector general, he put is succinctly. >> one thing people overlook is where he they got the money to pay back the loan. it isn't from earnings. they didn't earn an extra 4 1/2 billion dollars, it's from another pool of tarp money they received. so there was money in escrow. >> neil: so they paid off a credit
between goldman sachs and a client facilitate lending and investing in america, to what judd gregg said. the reason we have wall street is to lend money to large businesses and small businesses and invest money in small businesses and large businesses. and goldman does a great job of that, or did historically. but the legalization of this type of speculation, which is now the bread and butter not only for lloyd blankfein, who is the poster child because the brand is so powerful, merrill lynch, umbrellas, deutsche bank, jpmorgan, this is a huge business model in the country, this type of rampant speculation on whether you can pay your bills. why is that part of our system, which is really where we're headed in these types of hearings and this type of trial. >> let's talk about fabulous fab, a colorful figure. >> i think fabrice at this point is more likely to come out as good as he is bad in this in the sense that i don't think anybody believes fabrice alone could conjure the security he's on trial for today. >> the one individual name. >> that he's the guy. it sounds like he's got a nic
. that everybody in every office building, on every farm and ranch, in every small business in america ought to be asking questions about what has become the new law of the land. i think the attorney general -- the attorneys general of the multiple states in this country, they started asking these questions as the process was going through and as they discovered nightmare after nightmare after nightmare as pertaining to the states, they started getting to be raddled and they started to say -- rattled and they started to say, this can't be. we can't be imposing this kind of will under the commerce claw -- clause. so i think it's important that we look at the 9th and 10th amendment and the commerce clause and i'm going to start off talking about some constitutional law here with my good friend dan burton and we're going to see how we figure this is. i think i've got -- yeah, here we go. i think everybody out there learned in school, we have a constitution and we have amendments to that constitution which is just part of the constitution, just came at a different time. and the amendments have a
america, small businesses, consumers, public safety and cyber security. that is why it is so important that everything that we do has a solid legal foundation. the communications act, i believe, requires the fcc to adopt policies to protect consumers in concerts networks whether they are traditional networks are newer data networks. they assume that the fcc is making sure consumers are protected, competition is promoted, innovation and investment are promoted and it will be completely consistent with the communications act for us to continue to do what the fcc on a bipartisan basis has been doing for quite some time. >> thank you, mr. chairman. >> senator nelson. >> thank you, chairman. i would ask that my statement be entered in the record as an opening statement. >> will i have a chance to read it first before i rule on that? >> that is up to you. >> so ordered. >> thank you, mr. chair. >> mr. genachowski, your plan has recommendations to provide the ultra high-speed internet to some select military installations. and, of course, we have quite a bit of military in this state of flor

europe, london and new york. the commissioner said if america doesn'tgram grapple with the debt problem, it won't turn into greece but will have similar problems. the first day the u.s. debt commission meets across the water, greece sees its bond rating reduced to junk bond status and those weigh heavily on the minds of the commissioners who have to decide what to recommend and congress has to decide what to do. >> major garrett at the white house, thank you. >>> new developments in the hot senate race in florida. the frontrunner, marco rubio, takes another step in his campaign. the governor, charles crist, makes a big announcement. carl cameron with the facts in a live report coming up. there were dead spots everywhere. this is the right stuff. ortho weed b gon max. it kills weeds down to the root. even the tough ones like dandelion and crabgrass. but unlike that other stuff, it won't kill the grass. ortho guarantees it. kill the weeds, not the lawn. weeds, not lawn. got it? yea. ortho weed b gon max. defend what's yours. carl cameron is live in the south florida newsrooms. i'm told th
cannot do it without this bill. to do that, we have to restore america's faith in our ability to take strong, corrective action against the bad actors that perpetrated this crisis. yes, this is our moment to act and yet we cannot. the other side of the aisle will not let it happen. derivatives were exempted, as i say, from regulation in the commodities futures modernization act of 2000. that law created massive regulatory loopholes, like the enron loophole, which prohibited the commodities futures trading commission from overseeing electronic exchanges. the london loophole -- allowed for -- the swaps loophole, which allowed for unregulated bilateral trades through brokers, swap dealers and direct party-to-party negotiations. together these loopholes have been responsible for some of our nation's worst economic crises. they must be closed. i first became aware of the problem of unregulated derivatives during the western energy crisis. the year was 1999 when enron traders fleeced californians for approximately $40 billion in artificially inflated electricity and natural gas pric
that maybe we've got an industry that possibly is growing again in america? >> well, clearly, ali, in ford's case, this is a result of all the actions that we put in place three years ago to create an exciting viable profit, growing ford by focusing on a complete family of vehicles from ford and every one will be investment class. see the way the consumers have responded to this new ford lineup and the quality is just fantast fantastic. those are the results we're seeing today. >> you talk about quality. when you and i first talked soon after you took over at ford, quality was an issue, major issue for ford. even though it was part of the tag line for ford, quality was an issue. where are you now with that? >> well, our latest result on both the customer satisfaction portion of quality in addition to the technical aspects of things gone right or wrong, we have just moved into the leadership in the industry and in terms of our quality in the consumers' eyes. so, you know, all of that work, you know, quarter after quarter, is really paying off with the highest quality in the industry today.
international investors will want to invest back here in america, they will trust the integrity of our system. so, colleagues, i encourage all of you, let's come together when we have this next cloture vote and decide that it is time to fight for the people of this country and fight for the economic future of our country by proceeding to the debate of this bill and the passage of this bill and getting it to the president's desk. thank you, mr. president. the presiding officer: the senator fro minnesota. mr. franken: i rise this evening to talk about how we can take a big step towards holding wall street accountable and stopping it from lining its own pockets at the expense of america's families. last month, as part of the health care reconciliation bill, the senate also passed a student loan reform that ended a longtime corporate welfare program. our reforms halted the enormous subsidies that the federal government paid to lenders in the student loan market, replacing it with a program called "direct lending" that slashes $61 billion in costs to the taxpayers by cutting out the
